The more subtle color change toward spring just didn't help at all. Around 10am it was 8 degrees at my house, wind chill was -4. So going a little more springlike for the background.
I am really hoping for a heatwave, it would put us nearly under water and mud but it would still be worth it.
I am working out a very little bit and mostly exhausted. Nina is continuing her vacation, there is no point in trying to get her conditioned when there is snow and ice everywhere.
I am seriously considering moving before next winter. We have never had winters like the last few here. We always laughed at the idea that we were buried in snow all the time. The mountains got the snow, what we got (and sometimes a lot) melted off fast and if you have ever lived at altitude, 30s or 40s under a clear sky and hot sun is perfectly comfortable. This has been miserable. There is still, underneath the snow from two weeks ago, snow from before Thanksgiving. I know that is not unusual for part of the country but it is here. Maybe Nina and I would be better off in New Mexico. I lived there for almost 20 years and love it. Have to consider that.
In the meantime, hoping for spring to arrive soon so we can get to work.
